Our focus in English this half term is to improve our sentence formation, and learn to apply our phonics knowledge. The children are working really hard on improving their sentences and are learning that every sentence needs a capital letter, a full stop, and finger spaces. The children are also using their phonics to sound their words out.

Map Work

 

This week the children have started to look at our local area. We looked at the school on google maps and then we used this map to walk around the school grounds. When we came back into school, we retraced our route and marked this on the map. Next week we are going to go on a walk around the estate.

Visit from Mrs White

 

After our fun project launch last week, the children wanted to find out about what Mrs Wright was like as a baby. So we wrote an email to her mum, Mrs White, to see if she could come in and answer some of our questions. She came to school and spoke to the children. She told them lots of things and showed the children some photos. Mrs White also bought a teddy with her called Soft who is Mrs Wright's favourite teddy from when she was a baby.

Project Homework

Children will have brought home the homework sheet for this half term. Every week the children have a different piece of homework to bring into school. This work will then be placed in the memory box along with other items.

 

This week children need to draw or paint a picture of their family and write the names for all the people. They could also bring a photo into school. If the photo is a digital copy you can email to kwright@woodlands.academy and I can print it out.

 

Project Launch- Tea and Cake with the parents

 

The children were busy this week preparing for our project launch. The children made rice crispy cakes and iced biscuits in the DT suite. They then thought of some questions that they wanted to ask the adults about what they were like when they were babies and younger children. We all had a lovely afternoon and thank you to everyone who came.

Penny Wars  

 

From Monday 15th we are starting Penny Wars! This is a competition throughout school to see which class can fill their container first. The money is going towards the defibrillator that we are fundraising for. We need to fill our container with 1p and 2p coins which will give us 1 or 2 points. However we can be sabotaged and if a 5p or 10p is placed in our container then we will use 5 or 10 points. So please get as many 1p and 2p coins as you can and lets see if Class 2 can fill their container first and win!

Reading

 

Well done to all the children who achieved the reading challenge last week and got a fab five sticker for their reading. The expectation is that children read at least four times a week. The total number of reads for this term is 50 in order to achieve the reading challenge. Any support that you can give your child with their reading is greatly appreciated.

Attendance

 

Last week we had 100% attendance which means that we get the attendance trophy for the week and the children also get some sweets. The whole class were very excited and proud that we have achieved 100%.

 

Butterfly Hunt

 

Year One went to the outdoor classroom and completed a butterfly hunt. There were a variety of butterflies hidden in the trees. We found the brightly coloured butterflies much easier than the darker butterflies. We talked about camouflage and we found out that this means that animals match to their surroundings. The camouflaged animals are less likely to be eaten by predators.

 

Spellings

 

The spellings for this week (week beginning 24th) are:

say

hay

joy

came

bake

to

Children will come home with the look, cover, write spelling sheet. Please practise the spellings with your child ready for Friday 28th.
